WIP Wednesday

Wheeeee, I am back on track with my posts :) but I am not quite there yet posting my WIP's and FP's when they are actually in that particular state.

This here WIP today has been on my needles since 31 March but somehow I always had something else I wanted to show, so this went into the "must-post-this-next-week" queue...ahem. By now, this beauty is actually only a few rows away from being completed, so these pictures are somewhat giving a wrong impression, because I am done so much further. 

The pattern has been taken from the Spring/Summer 2012 edition of Designer Knitting (formerly Vogue Knitting) and I am SO in love with it *sigh*. Ins't this poncho to die for?

What I love most about it is that the poncho is long at the back and shorter at the front and is soooooooooooooooo easy to knit up as the pattern is very memorable. I am now at the stage where I don't have to look anymore, I can knit this baby blind :)
WIP status: 01 April 2012

Close up of lace pattern:

It is actually Pumpkin's fault that I have discovered this particular magazine. She blogged here about the cardigan she had on her needles which made me look at the mag - and I knew I had to have it after I saw the poncho on the first page.

Once I had the mag in my hands and decided that I desperately wanted to knit at least 70% of all patterns featured, I knew I had to sub to it....but now to wait until the next issue is going to test my patience. But I already have a stash of yarn waiting for the next project from this issue :)

And to finish this post of, here is another looks at the WIP status from last week

I know what you are all wondering - if I am actually going to keep it AND wear it? Hand on heart, I can answer this with a big fat YESSIR because I already tried it on and I a totally loving it. Now I have to hurry up and finish it so I can finally give the yarn (which had been frogged 2,876 times previously) its deserved outing.

  1. Woah, Vogue Knitting changed names? This is news to me. I actually have the Vogue Knitting copy with that pattern and it was still labeled as Vogue. How things change! I'm also very flattered that you would mention me here on your blog, thank you. This project is going to be beautiful!

  2. Your work is looking great, love the close up of the lace pattern. Looking forward to the end result!

  3. Love the colour, love the pattern. It is the best when you find a magazine or book filled with things you actually want to create!

  4. Happy ending to a long, sad story!! I'm so glad this yarn is finally going to get it's due glory! Yay, no more frogging! Can't wait to see the finished poncho. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment - I do appreciate it a lot.
